Joe Biden Gets Drudge Love And Laughs For 'Big Stick' Comment: VIDEO


Conservative aggregator Matt Drudge abandoned panic and sensation for a moment today and instead went with double entendre when linking to video of Vice President Joe Biden saying President Obama has a "big stick" and will be aggressive in negotiations with Iran.

Drudge can't be blamed for partaking in some puerile humor. Who wouldn't? Biden's comments begged for a chuckle, as they're wont to do. And NBC News reports that even Biden's audience laughed, which apparently inspired Biden to offer another suggestive remark:

Biden, notorious for his gaffes, said when it comes to Iran policy, it was time to heed the timeless advice of Theodore Roosevelt,  to "speak softly and carry a big stick."

"I promise you, the president has a big stick," Biden said.

The bizarre choice of words elicited giggles from his audience and spread quickly on Twitter after it was tweeted by political reporters. About 500 people were in the audience, mostly NYU students.

Biden also got some laughs when he described Obama's decisiveness.
"This guy's got a backbone like a ramrod. For real. For real," he said.

Hey, the man knows his audience.

Watch video of Biden's "big stick" remark AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. I think that sometimes humor can be the bridge between Democrats or Conservatives or any two group of people who have such different points of view. Of course, it's not the only bridge nor should it be used excessively lest current politics degrade even further.

  7. I guess Biden thought he was speaking to a more mature, sophisticated and well educated group of listeners. Instead, he seems to have appeared in front of a bunch of drunken frat boys, including Matt Drudge and Mr. Belonsky, coming off a web porn session.

  8. We all know that the closet case Drudge would just love some "big stick". Someone should volunteer to give him some "big stick" to prevent him from talking so much trash. Admitedly you would probably have to put a bag with a mouth hole cut out over his head in order to sustain an erection. But someone should make the sacrifice.

  9. Love Biden and his "gaffes." Wouldn't call this a gaffe tho, this seems more a case that he was simply addressing a group with the collective maturity level of high school freshmen. And OMGeeeee, they just couldn't wait to TWEET it! Gimme a break.
